SLN bans deep sea fishing in Vadamaradchy

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 May 2006, 17:53 GMT]
More than a thousand fishermen of Vadamaradchy north, affected by the ban imposed by Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) Friday prohibiting deep sea fishing on the coast line from Thondaimanaru to Point Pedro Munai, registered complaints with the Jaffna Government Agent and the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Jaffna that they will lose their only livelihood, said fisheries sources from Point Pedro.

The SLN directive restricting the fishermen to fish within only 3 sea miles from their shores has crippled their trade forcing manyfamilies into economic hardship, said the fishermen.

The SLN warned that fishermen slighting this ban will be shot, added the sources.

SLN imposed a total ban on fishing along the said coast line following the recent attack on SLN vessels in Vettilaikerny.
